Last night’s “debate” was, as @DanabaschCNN so delicately called it a “shit show”. Anxiety was through the roof for so many. I scrolled twitter and IG, and everyone was consuming copious amounts of wine (no judgement here!)
In addition to coping with wine, I wanted to provide 3 easy to do anxiety busting acupressure points you can do almost anywhere including meetings, job interviews or sitting in traffic.
❤️Pericardium 6 - This point helps soothe anxiety and helps with nausea.
How to Find It - With your palm face up, bend your wrist slightly so you can see the crease. Place 3 fingers width wise across your wrist. Right below the bottom finger, in the hollow area between the 2 tendons. Apply a decent amount of pressure with your pointer finger (it doesn’t need to hurt) and start by taking 3 deep breaths. Do both sides. You can increase the number of breaths.
❤️Pericardium 8 - This point is called the “Palace of Anxiety” Say no more.
How to Find It - Located in the fleshy center of the palm, or where the tip of your middle finger touches when making a fist. Use your thumb or forefinger to apply a good amount of pressure and take 3 deep breaths. Do both sides. You can increase the number of breaths.
❤️Heart 7 - This point is called “Spirit Gate”
How to Find It - On the underside of your wrist, towards the pinky finger side, there will be a hollow between the hand and the wrist. Use your forefinger to apply a decent amount of pressure and take 3 deep breaths. Do both sides. You can increase the number of breaths.

Yesterday I was supposed to have my 1:1 with my boss directly after our team call to talk with him about my Q4 goals.
He asked the rest of the team to stay and hear what I had put together. When I told him what I had planned he said that I wasn't proactive or strategic and hadn't done certain things. I spoke calmly back and said it wasn't true and that I had done these things he mentioned and it hadn't really worked well and then I mentioned what was working. It didn't go well and I feel angry and demoralized as I have had a lot of success in my role but he keeps making terrible comments like this in meetings. I have a lot of experience in my field and I'm trying to share my expertise but he doesn't want to listen to it and thinks he knows everything. I'm hoping for some advice on how to handle someone like him.

Were my annual reviews too long winded and how do I get my underpaid direct reports larger than average salary increases?
Hi, I have two direct reports at a job I started at the beginning of the year. One is a more seasoned employee who has been doing the work of two employees imo for over a year and the other is a recent collect grad. We recently had our annual written reviews and I wrote about four or five paragraphs on their strengths and accomplishments, trying to point out specific things I thought were above average in terms of contributions. I also mentioned that I hoped that their contributions were acknowledged in terms of more competetive pay.
Now I'm worried that the reviews I left them might have been too long winded for HR/Senior Management to read through.
I also feel like both of them aren't even being paid a competetive wage. What else can I do to try and get them increases? I have spoken with my own manager who agrees with me, but he also said his manager is focused on the budget. Any ideas how I can convince the people who have the power to sign off on increases to increase their pay my more than the standard COL increase?
